Trafalgar police chief demoted

Disputes with elected officials and management issues in the police department led to the demotion of Trafalgar’s longtime police chief, town officials said.

The Trafalgar Town Council and board of metropolitan police commissioners both approved demoting Trafalgar Police Chief Kurt Heminger. Charles Roberts was selected as interim police chief.

Personnel issues, an ongoing dispute with clerk-treasurer Dawn Ray and job performance were among the reasons the council decided to demote Heminger, town council president Jeff Eisenmenger said.
